Maternity sessions are my fav. And the only thing that makes a maternity session better is when you get to photograph past wedding clients. It just seems like it all comes full circle.
Leslie and Yashaar are expecting a baby girl in October. This little girl is going to not only be beautiful, but she is going to be smart as well. Leslie is going to be an amazing role model for her daughter. She’s an accomplished author and I love seeing her name on books when I walk through a bookstore.
Yashaar and Leslie met while attending UCI and their first date was in Newport, which is where we shot this session. They have great memories from here. Some of which they remember and some which they don’t The boardwalk was a bit crowded so we hung out in some of the alleys and found some places away from the crowds and wind.
This session was a gift from Leslie’s best friend, Cassandra. After the session Leslie told me how nice it was to get dolled up and feel pretty. Because, let’s admit it, you don’t always feel pretty while carrying another human inside of you. I hope Leslie’s baby girl is surrounded by great girlfriends like the friends Leslie has.
